, but he's turning it over to his new secretary of state. >> john kerry is very interested in pursuing this. they knows the region very well, and president obama said, fine -- in a way this trip -- this is an unusual trip in that president obama is advancing the secretary of state, who is here right now, but will be coming back pretty frequently, so president obama is not going to -- he's going to talk about the palestinian issue in his business speech tomorrow, i think, but bakley he's trying to set the stage to reset the relationship with israel, with its government in particular so that john kerry can come in and with new ideas and be received, better than some of obama's first-term ideas were received. so there is a point to this trip, but it's a building block trip. >>> jeff goldberg, thank you very much, as always. >> thank you. >>> and up next, in our "daily fix" who killed the senate assault weapons ban. >>> plus mark sanford survives round 1 in south carolina, and why is bill clinton getting involved in the kentucky democratic senate race against ashley judd? send me your thoughts
meeting over the weekend with the u.s. secretary of state john kerry returns. he will meet with prime minister netanyahu saturday night and more substantive issues about the peace process may emerge in that particular meeting. but for the next two days, the talks between obama and the 10 yahoo will center on what are seen as shared fears, shared interest -- talk between obama fearstanyahu, on shared -- iran developing a nuclear weapon and a situation in syria which is seen very much as a threat to stability. these will be the issues that will dominate the discussion. is a the studio with me senior political analyst. mike was sending the main ground that these two leaders want to syria.ill be iran and there is a difference in opinion as to how imminent a threat iran and its nuclear program is. are they going to be able to find common ground here? >> yes, it is about how imminent in the threat, and even more important, how to deal with it. president obama insists it will be america that will call the shots on iran and not israel. that is a row, even if it has the right to act on its own
much to even go there? >> they are talking about it but i think it will be in john kerry's lap and he will be here saturday night. after going to jordan with the president we will double back to jerusalem, have dinner with netanyahu, have dinner with a couple of advisers on both sides, and they will try to move this along. it is a big stretch. my colleague, veteran journalist here, martin fletcher of nbc, says it is hard for them to come up with a new configuration. you have ynetanyahu out of a ne election. you have palestinian authority. so how you have negotiations and what the formula would be and israel surrounded byis lathe fund meantlism and war in syria, it just really is a very hard climb. but they said they are at least going to start. and i know that john kerry is very committed to this. >> andrea mitch they'll jerusalem. thanks so much, andrea. great information. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> with us now is a fellow from is a van center at middle east policy from brookings institution. as andrea just mentioned, israelis had an election of their own recently. prime minister

the future of the region but that being said, secretary of state john kerry is also here at the moment in jerusalem. he will be making these meetings and these rounds as well. he'll stay in the region after president obama leaves. he'll come back to jerusalem, speak to israeli officials about possibly starting peace talks -- starting peace talks again to find resolution when it comes to israeli/palestinian issue. it will be interesting to see what president obama says tomorrow when he speaks in front of hundreds of israeli students. he's made some strong words in the past condemning settlement construction in the occupied territories of the palestinians in the west bank. interesting to see what he has to say to these israeli students tomorrow. kelly? >> great stuff. thanks very much for that. straight ahead on the program, the internet isn't a vending machine. that's according to our next guest. he's the ceo of e-commerce giant. find out why he thinks you should check out with more than just profit in your basket. ♪ [ male announcer ] how could switchgrass in argentina, change engine
